This is a topic I've always been curious about and this seems like a pretty appropriate venue for this question:
Men, how would you feel if a woman came up to you and asked you out (assuming she was clearly not crazy and was doing so politely)?
Would you be aggravated that you couldn't beat her to punch? Would you feel awkward if you weren't interested?
As for me, I have no problem asking a guy out. If I like someone and there are indications he likes me, I'll just be straightforward and ask him if he would like to go grab some coffee. I don't like prolonged flirting or waiting around for him (I don't play games, in other words). My first serious relationship actually started by me asking him out, so I know it does work. I now have a better appreciation when a guy has the courage to ask me out. I think since I've gone through it, I'm much more caring and gentle about turning him down if I'm not interested because I know how nervewracking it is :)
I'm just curious what you all might think. I've heard many contrasting theories.
I promise I won't judge! Please be honest.
